What makes the Challenger a good sports car?

The Dodge Challenger is one of the best sports cars on the market today, primarily due to its powerful engine, even at the basic trim level. The standard trim offers a V6, but there are also proper Hemi V8 options. Though critics argue that the Challenger has some challenges when met with a curve, the average consumer probably won't mind so much.

The Challenger also gets praises sung for its trunk space, which you might not expect from a small sports car such as this.

Which Dodge Challenger should I buy?

Since 2015, Dodge has been making significant improvements with every new model year of the Dodge Challenger. The muscle-heavy trim packages that are the most familiar with the Challenger, the Scat Pack and the Hellbody, debuted several new trim levels. Since then, improvements from Apple Car play to additional horsepower were made. In 2021, the Widebody model is being made more available on more models.

We offer reviews of older Dodge Challenger models as well as newer Dodge Challenger models above. You should also head over to our used inventory to find a Dodge Challenger near you, since the best way to determine which Dodge Challenger is right for you, is through a thorough test drive.

How much does the Dodge Challenger cost?

Although the price varies depending on which trim package you buy, the Dodge Challenger starts at $28,295.
